Hi, I have had some blood spots from time to time which I have read is normal, I cracked open an egg the other day to feed to my dog and there was a lot of blood in the yolk what could this be?

Also another egg had a hard black spot in it?

The hard black spot was probably some dried blood that got left behind in the oviduct and then enclosed by a new egg in the making. Have any of your hens been laying bigger eggs than normal, that might have caused some mischief during manufacture?

I know Uno had a lot of trouble with hens laying eggs with blood spots, but I don't think she tracked down any particular cause.

All of the eggs seem to be of normal size, I had one Egg that had Blood on the outside of the shell also.
